How do i report suspected abuse, without getting my name involved in it? I tried to call the 1800 # last night, and she was extremely rude, and then after 20 min's on the phone with her, she tried to give me the number to the Irvine office,where they never answer the phone or return calls. I was so upset with the behavior of the lady from the 1800 #. I said " so i guess i wased my time trying to save some kids from being abused. I was truely digusted. What if the children in question, dies becasue she blew me off? I also asked her that, and she just keep repeating for me to call the local office. Why do these people not care" about the welfare of children. I'm calling a few polital figures today, for trying to report abuse, then being blown off. I couldn't believe that she wasn't willing to do anything about this issue i was trying to report. And before i get smarta$$ comments, this is a confirmed case of neglect and abuse. I'm not the kind of person to get involved in other people's business, but i truely am worried about these kids in question. So, I suppose if you have any advice for me please let me know. I called really late, so maybe i made her mad, cause i woke her up. But, our tax dollars are paying for these people to protect our children, and from what I have seen Irvine, doesn't care at all. It's like they dont want to do the paper work. I am so furoius right now, but I dont which way to turn, when the people in Frankfort just blow you off. I promise she new i was upset, by the time i gave up and hung up on her, after realizing she had no intentions of trying to actually help with the situaion. I'm going to political figure websites next. I dont know what else to do, but i can't just stand back and watch children being neglected and abused. They deserve to be in loving families, there are so many families out there that would love to have the blessing of a child in their life. I dont understand why people have kids, if they dont intend to properly take care of them. I'm a mother, and I for one dont by the whole " i didn't bond with my baby",(maybe becasue you were too high to realize that this inocent little baby depends on you for everything, including LOVE). Please advise, if you know of a direction I should go in..thanks..again sorry this post is so long I am just so upset with the way the system works.

I had the same experiance with calling the number your talking about and was treated rudley also. I just turned it around on her and said " It is in your hands now I pray you do the right thing" She also told me to call local office,and proceeded to try to tell me that a mother who was shooting up. Wasn't abuse,even though the children were going to neighbors crying that they were hungry. Don't give up trying. I just kept on calling back demanding that something be done. It worked for awhile but the children are back with the unfit parents now it is truly sad. Just like everything else it seems no one wants to get involved.Good Luck getting something done.

Please DO give your name for credibility. By law they cannot release it. If you are not satisfied with CPS, call the ombudsmen ( also on link) and you will get results. Everyone needs to speak up for the children.

This is ridiculous. I can't believe that they treated you like an annoyance! If they aren't there to resolve child abuse, then what in the heck are they there for?!
You see so many stories on the news about children dying from being neglected or abused...kinda makes you wonder if someone tried to report the parents via the 800 number and just got blew off or rude responses. I wonder how many children's lives could have been saved if these people had actually done their jobs.
I'm sorry I didn't answer your question. I just had to vent my frustration on the topic. I really hope you figure out a way to help these children. There needs to be more people like you in Estill County.

I agree to many children gets abused in this country I know several people that has tried to report abuse and they say there is nothing they can do. You hear of children getting killed, sexual abuse , neglect and they say as long as they have food in fridge and no marks on them they are ok. It is always to late before they will step in. I do hope you can get help for these children before it is to late and I am thankful you care enough to try to get them help. Good Luck

Unfortunately, many social workers become burned out quickly. They find the job is not what they thought it would be. They can't move up in employment because they didn't get beyond a four year degree and they wind up stuck. It's a shame.

You honestly don't think that some children need to be taken away from neglectful or abusive parents? Then you are the pathetic one.

Most of the Irvine Workers are on Facebook and they make some very unPROFESSIONAL remarks re. their days at work. I think they are simply not trained well enough for this Professional job.

That office used to have wonderful workers who had education, experience and training.

ladies, be careful what you are saying on Facebook.

Helpin and helpin2 are two different people. Just want to clarify this so as not to confuse people. So why did you choose to use my handle, helpin2? The original helpin will have an IP address of either Indiana or Ohio.

You know you could take away all the confusion and just register. Its free and only takes a minute to do so. I don't see what the big deal would be. That's the only way to really claim a handle. If you are not registered anyone can decide to use it. But one things for sure you get the yellow then we know who it is. Just trying to help or in your alls case helpin:)

Child Protective Services laws are, a child has to be seriously injured before anything can be done.
Sad because then it is usually too late.

Not true. I have seen children removed for fleas, no water, no heat, bed bugs, repeated lice infestation, drugs, neglect, emtional abuse, mental illness, depression, lack of medical care, unsanitary living conditions.......

I have heard of kids being taken away because the mom was on drugs. Those children weren't injured so I am not sure I agree with the last post.

It has been my experience that Irvine's social workers are nice and helpful. Call Gidget at the food stamp office. She could help. She wouldn't tell anyone who you are, but she could tell you if anything can be done.

Gidget needs to be reported to someone herself, she smokes pot, its a known fact. who knows she may do drugs to.
